ulmacea could represent a transition state between the samaroid schizocarp
formed by Serjania and the septifragal capsule produced by Cardiospermum.
The fruit is a 3-winged schizocarp
derived from a 3-carpellate superior ovary, separating septicidally into three 2-winged cocci.
Fruit a (septicidal or loculicidal) capsule, berry, drupe or dry and indehiscent or a schizocarp
, sometimes dicoccous (Galium), rarely a nutlet (Theligonum).
Seed-like fruits, such as Apiaceae indehiscent schizocarps
or Urtica spp.
In years that maples are seeding synchronously in massive numbers, like 2012 and 2013, they use much of their nutrients to make samaroid schizocarps
(maple seed-noses, to us laymen).
The fruits of this family are known as schizocarps
, each of which splits upon maturity into two mericarps.
Carrots belong to the family Apiaceae, which is characterized by having dissected leaves, umbellate inflorescences, and fruits that are schizocarps
, which split into two meri carps.

The fruits of Daucus carota are schizocarps
, which dehisce into two single-seeded mericarps (Lacey, 1982).
